Gingerbread Friend Gift Wrapping

Wrap a gift with plain paper wrapping and then adhere a long strip of patterned gift wrap.

Penguins added to front of T-shirt.

Penguin T-shirt Outfit

We found this especially interesting as Melissa used her cutting machine to cut the Penguin patterns.

"First you iron on the under wonder on the fabric to make it more stiff and use a brand new cutting mat. My settings was pressure high, speed high and blade set on 2. I used a thin fabric so you may have to change your settings if you get a thicker fabric.

Carefully place all the pieces on the shirt and once you have them in place... I placed a towel over them and layed the iron on top just enough to heat up the pieces so they dont move when you finish ironing them on. I use fabric paint to outline the edges."

What a great gift idea!
